Alia Bhatt is one of the most famous actors in Bollywood and will soon enter Hollywood as well. With Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, she made her film debut. After that, she rose to fame with each film. But do you know how much she charged for her first film Student Of The Year?
She is the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and veteran actor Soni Razdan. She signed her first film at the age of 19. She was launched with Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. She was talking about her journey so far and revealed what she did with her first pay cheque.
In a recent interview, Alia told that she was paid Rs 15 lakh for Student of the Year. She did not use her first pay cheque. She handed the cheque to her mother. She said, “I deposited the cheque straight to my mother and very nicely said, ‘Mamma, you handle the money’. Till date, my mother handles my money.”
The film Student of the Year was released in 2012. Considered to be the worst film of Karan Johar’s career, the film was highly criticized in the industry for ‘bad script, performance and even for promoting nepotism.’ Karan told that for Student of the Year, he had to come down to the brass tacks. That was the only way people would see it. He also added that he did not know what he was doing. He thought he was drunk or something. Karan started shooting the film and he was like, ‘Why is this script so bad?”
